does anyone know if it is possible to fit a 16v backbox to an 8v mid box,

I am fitting a 2.0 8v into my g2 and have been offered a stainless 16v backbox for 20 but have already got an 8v mid box,

I think the bore is slightly bigger on the 16v but not sure, if this is all i can fit a sleeve?

Hello mate the bracket the back box hangs on is in a different place so you would need to cut it off and either make a bracket or weld the old one back on in a different place Thumbs up

you sure thats not dependant on years? I have fitted valver backboxes to 8vs without changing any brackets before. I dont remember any of them having a bracket on the box.
